  Idaho vs. Transgender Rights   One of the ways those of us who are LGBTQI+ try to understand what is going on in our lives, especially those of us who lived or are living in closets, is by watching, listening, sensing, feeling the life of those who are portraying LGBTQI+ people in the arts: film, movies, music events, plays, dance, musicals, and visual arts, to name a few, popular mediums.    Among these artistic expressions, film has always been, for me, a social gauge as to where we are as...

  Vashon Island, LGBTQ+ People, and the Church   Last Saturday, my partner Christian Halstead and I had a chance to visit the Vashon Island Heritage Museum on Vashon Island.
